Ever since Square-Enix at long last announced Crystal Dynamic’s Avengers game last year, fans have been wondering where Hawkeye was.

They revealed on the official PlayStation Blog that Hawkeye will have his own unique mission chain to play through, either solo or co-op, and posted this piece of concept art of an alternate outfit inspired by Matt Fraction’s run:
The first beta for Marvel’s Avengers begins next weekend for those who pre-ordered the PlayStation 4 version of the game. The following week is another beta, inviting Xbox players, and those who complete the beta will unlock Hulk glove pickaxes in Fortnite.
